Sze Mun Chen, Malaysia

Bachelor of Business (Marketing and Tourism Management) Alumna

"One of the biggest advantages of going to Bond, is the assistance you get from the Career Development Centre. They helped me get an internship at Dreamworld, working closely with the Public Relations team. I also attended industry networking events that allowed me to connect with management-level stakeholders.

After graduating, I joined the pre-opening team for the newest addition to The Star Entertainment Group - The Darling at The Star Gold Coast".
